Types of Scholarships available for Study Abroad Aspirants

List of scholarships available for Bangladeshi students!

Grants and scholarships are a great way to reduce your overall expenses on overseas education. A common misconception among candidates is that there are no scholarship opportunities available for international students. Well, that’s not true. Governments and universities around the world value high performing students and have many scholarship programs designed to attract the best and the brightest minds in their country. A study abroad scholarship is a financial award for students to use toward the costs of their program, for example, travel, course, credits, books and housing.


Types of scholarships available

There are various kinds of scholarships available for every kind of student, majorly categorised as:

    • Merit-based: Based on a student’s academic record or extracurricular activities such as achievements in sports and service to the community.

    • Student specific: Students who qualify based on factors such as gender, race, religion, family and medical history can apply to such scholarships.

    • Destination specific: Several public authorities, governments or universities grant bursaries and funds to students from a particular country. For instance, scholarships offered by the Ministry of Foreign Affairs and Trade of New Zealand or the Chevening fellowship granted by the UK Government for international students from Commonwealth countries.

    • Subject specific: Certain universities and institutions award grants to students who plan to pursue a specific field of study. 

    • Need-based: Targeted towards students facing financial constraint, these scholarships are offered on the basis of your parent’s financial background. Authorities may ask you for documents such as family income, tax statements, employment proofs, etc.

    • Athletic scholarships: Provided to top-notch sportsmen, these scholarships require you to contribute with rigorous training and representing your university at events whilst balancing your education. 

    • Program-specific scholarships: Program-specific scholarships are offered by individual study abroad programs as well as the schools and colleges where they might be related to qualified candidates. These scholarships are frequently given based on academic and individual accomplishment, however qualifications will differ based on the specific scholarship.
